It's funny how time flies, I often think of her, and my Father, Peter, I know Mum used to say that she was a 'Hoarder', but in truth, she wasn't, she kept things of sentimental value, and like many of us, there were things that could have gone to the skip that didn't, but she often threw things out that were of no further use, and when my Brother and I went to clear out the house after she passed on, there was not a great lot that I would have classed as rubbish.
Mum had a very practical mind, she lived on her own for 25 years after Father died, having no interest in another relationship, she looked after her house on her own, doing much of her own decorating, and inventing things to assist in making life easier around the house and garden. Mother enjoyed fly fishing, and all things to do with the countryside,

Some would have called Mother an eccentric, maybe she was in her own way, but she coped, and she was fiercely loyal to Family.
